7:15 am
president obama gave seven years. your husband has been adamant about the two years being released. why won't he follow the others on both sides of the aisle? >> i think there are reasons for these things. i think you should look at where mitt led his life. we give 10% of our income to our church every year. do you think that is the kind of person trying to hide things? or do you think, no, he's so good about it. governor of massachusetts, didn't take a salary in four years. >> why not show that? >> because there are so many -- >> make it a moot point. people will move on. >> because so many things will be open to attack. you don't want to give more material for more attack. we have given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life. that election will not be decide on that. it will be decided on who will
7:16 am
turn the economy around and how are jobs coming back to america. >> then there's the controversy on whether mitt romney outsourced jobs while running bain capital. independent fact-cherks criticize this obama ad saying romney had already left the company. but an obama campaign aide said romney may have lied about when he left. >> he sure as heck ought to say he's sorry for the kinds of attacks coming from his team. >> reporter: and this from the president. >> we won't be apologetic the. >> i'm not disappointed or surpri surprised. i believe it was beneath the office of the president to do something as egregious of that. >> reporter: away from the campaign trail, ann romney wages another battle, against multiple sclerosis since her diagnosis 14 years ago.
7:17 am
have you had a discussion with your husband now that could affect his presidency, if it does flare up? >> we would not have gone forward if i had been in an active part of my disease. i would have needed my husband to be there with me. the thing that you can't ever know about life is what tomorrow will bring. so you just step forward and just go on and for us right now, i really believe he's the right person at the right time. he has a clear understanding of how to create jobs. so many americans are suffering right now, out of work. i really, really believe in my heart that he's the right person at the right time to bring hope and recovery. >> reporter: part of her therapy is to ride horses. it's a high-end sport that made her and her rubd targets. how do you respond? >> i want to laugh. it makes me laugh. it's like, really? you know, there's so many people
7:18 am
